    Galentine’s Day in the City

    Skirts: Lisa’s skirt is unavailble, Tara’s here, Laura’s here | Sweaters: Lisa’s here, Tara’s here, Laura’s here It’s Galentine’s day!  February 13th is the unofficial holiday that really should be made official already.  It’s the day that ladies celebrate ladies.  With everything we juggle on a daily basis, this is the perfect excuse to get out and catch up on anything and everything. And do it in coordinated outfits of course! For this year’s Galentine’s day celebration, I met up with Laura from www.abouttheoutfits.com and Laura’s friend Lisa to grab some matcha lattes at NYC’s Cha Cha Matcha.

    Fendi Spring Runway Inspired Look

    Our Favorite Christmas Cookie

    Antique Tiffany cake server similar | Wedgewood Dinner Plate here | Vintage glass similar | Dessert plate still available here similar here We love baking cookies in our house no matter what time of year it is. However, Christmas cookies are extra special. We usually kick off the Christmas cookie baking right after Thanksgiving.  That’s usually when we start decorating the house as well.  It’s such a fun and festive time of year so why not start early! We bake a large assortment of different cookies and cakes at Christmas time.  I love the excuse to try new recipes.  I’m always looking for fun, somewhat healthier dessert options.  I have collected a large number of favorites.  Most of them…

    Bringing the Bergdorf Holiday windows to Life!

    The holiday window displays in New York City are some of the most anticipated of the year!  Equally gorgeous and creative displays are always a guarantee.  Wandering the streets and admiring the windows is a fun holiday activity that doesn’t cost you a dime. The theme this year at Bergdorf Goodman (or Bergdorfs) is #Bergdorfgoodies which features sweet treats and cotton candy statues. This pink candy colored theme was my favorite! Funny thing about this post.  My friend Laura from abouttheoutfits and I wanted to do a really fun and glamorous holiday look.  We planned our coordinated pink fur outfits weeks before the Bergdorf Goodman holiday windows were unveiled.  To our shock and excitement,…

    Sezane and new friends…

    The Sezane apartment in New York City sets the scene for a first meeting with one of my Instagram friends. One of the aspects of blogging I love best is meeting people with similar interests.  When I first started this blogging journey, the road seemed very lonely.  Instagram (IG) makes networking very easy.  You can find and follow those with similar interests or styles and develop a relationship by commenting on posts.  But because IG is global, it is rare that you actually get to meet these people who become your friends. Well, I did recently get a chance to meet one of my IG friends, Laura from @abouttheoutfits.  I’ve been following Laura since…
